CORONA VIRUS NOTICE - Limited Adoptions Resuming

We are so grateful for your desire to provide a home for a BRLA Boxer.

Our method of operation has been severely limited due to the contagious nature of C19 which is still an issue to the Greater Los Angeles area.

With fewer Boxers available for adoption at BRLA (and other rescues/shelters) our mission for responsible lifetime matches now requires pre-matching potential adopters to a specific dog at BRLA based on compatibility factors. We can only consider scheduling an appointment if there is a viable candidate currently at BRLA that matches your needs. Please review dog profiles carefully and watch their video for physical attributes.

Our introduction process under C19 limitations can no longer be as up-close and person as in prior years. Our face to face time with applicants now must be pre-qualified to both keep humans safe and ensure the right match.

With fewer available Boxers and more C19 limitations and restrictions we may not be able to accommodate dog to dog matches or invite large family groups at this time.  We are now only able to schedule a very limited number of Saturday adoption appointments

We are so grateful for your interest in BRLA Boxer. Considering all the factors involved at this time we may not be able to accommodate your request.

Thank you for being a Boxer lover and for understanding the changing times.

Let's Find You the Perfect Boxer to Adopt!

The key to our success is the process we use for matching dogs to people and people to dogs. Now dealing with COVID19 restrictions the requirements to schedule an appointment and adopt have been increased to meet safety demands.  With fewer Boxers in rescue compared to years ago, we must first make sure that an appliciple candidate exists for you.  Also we must first complete the review and scheduling of all backlogged application either schedule or recieved during our Coronavirus closure.  The backlog of application in our system far exceeds the number of Boxers typically residing at BRLA. With many of our Boxers requiring very specific homes, it is critical to pre-match dogs to adopters in advance of physically coming to BRLA. This new normal is much more difficutly logistically but we are committed to helping Boxers find the right home and adopters finding the right Boxer to welcome home.  To ensure a responsible lifetime match during C19, our application process has changed

  1. Review our available dogs, READ their full profile and watch their video. If we have a candidte for you then Fill out the Adoption Application
  2. We contact you to review your candidate choice and if there is a potential match we set up a Virtual Interview.
  3. The Vritual face to face interview (Zoom or Facetime) will allow full and honest discussion on compatibility.
  4. If it is determined we have an appropriate candidate a Saturday appointment will be set up.
  5. Everyone comes to our facility in the east SFV (near Burbank)  to meet your pre-determined candidate
  6. Our team manages introduction and interaction of your selected Boxer to you, your family
  7. You fall in love and take home the perfect BRLA Boxer! That day! Adoption Donation: $400

Our adoption steps are simple. There is a Step 6: Please be patient. Adoption is a lifetime commitment and we aim to get it right. We are fortunate to have a strong demand for adoption appointments. Our schedule does fill up in advance so best to get your application in without delay. You may see a dog on our website when you apply that may or may not be available on your scheduled day. Boxers are adopted every Saturday. But  do not worry, new Boxers needing loving homes arrive every week. We are confident you will fall in love when you come to Boxer Rescue LA
